Wrong Prescription Injury Lawyers
Causing over one million injuries and/or deaths across the United States in any given year, prescription and medication errors are alarming and 100% avoidable. From the time a medication is prescribed, it becomes part of a multi-step process that could go wrong at any point. For instance, a doctor that is in a hurry could become confused between two medications that sound the same, and he/she may unwittingly prescribe the wrong one. In another instance, the right medication may be prescribed. Yet, the pharmacist may dispense the incorrect dosage. Furthermore, a nurse can administer the wrong prescription, without reviewing a patient’s chart or asking for clarification from another medical professional. This may involve putting the wrong medication in a patient’s IV.
When it comes to prescription medication, it’s easy to understand that the wrong medication can be catastrophic. Patients are at risk for overdose, a severe allergic reaction and death.
